“An absolute gem close to Kruger”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 14, 2013

We stayed for just one night on the way to the Kruger Park but wished we were staying longer. Many attractions close by and the hospitality of the owners was first class. They were extremely friendly and keen to tell us about the local area. Large, clean, well furnished rooms set in a large garden and the usual B&B facilities were fabulous. If you book the evening meal, don't eat for a week beforehand! It was delicious as was the breakfast. Aqua terra is as good as it gets for B&B.

We got a very warm wellcome and had a good breakfest. As we asked for a skale we also got one (to know the weight of our lagguage) - it was very helpful. It is also nice to meet there some local people. Thanks for the nice stay.

Stayed at Aqua Terra for one night on our way from Kruger to JHB. 8 of us, 3 adults and 5 children. We arrived late (no problem) and enjoyed our stay very much. The hosts are very welcomming and friendly. It was our dughter's birthday and they quickly orgenized a choclate cake for her. These little things are those that make the difference. Greate place, nice setup, quiet, clean and very friendly.

Would definately recommend this place if you are on your way to Kruger. Very nice quality beds, which will ensure you a good nite's sleep. Sweet and service-minded hostess will attend to all your needs.

We enjoyed our stay at Aqua Terra Guesthouse. The owners, Ernest and Charlene, are very friendly. It felt like we were at home, doing our own thing, and the property with the river really 'wowed' us. Thanks for an unforgettable stay.

This trip was planned a long time, never being in that area before it was like being home from home at Aqua Terra. The rooms, service and excellent meals, home cooked and generous made us want to stay longer. If we ever go that way again, no question, where we will stay, Thank you, Ernest and Charlene
